THE LONG WALK

21: The last words of 2016



so what's this then this is where you get to do something about writing that novel you've always had inside you and can finally get all the money respect sex nothing you deserve.

sounds cool how does it work round about the first day of every month I put a thread up and you post in it to say how much new writing you're gonna post by 2359 PST on the last day of that month. there might be a little general leeway at the end of the month, but don't count on it and don't ask for extensions.

lol imma post one word 'lol' there I won lol there's a 4k word minimum. you can pledge more if you like, but 4k is the ante.

how many terrible words have been written through this thread and the ones before it?2,732,000. Some of them might have been good? idk

what happens if I gently caress it up every promise has to have a attached. you fail, you get banned.

how should I post my stuff up to you, but a link to a gdoc with comments enabled is best that way you won't restrict your publication options later.

can I do short stories sure. It has to be new words (prose, poetry, limericks) but otherwise you can post whatever as long as you make the wordcount

can I critpost, shitpost, or shart my jorts don't really care, it's not the thunderdome so just follow the exhortations of your clotted goony heart but keep in mind that detailed crits of longform stuff aren't super useful; better to keep them general. normal CC rules apply so be harsh but helpful

is there an irc channel most of us hang out in #thunderdome

where are the previous months 2015 April, May June July, August, September, October , November, December, 2016 January, February, March, April, May
June, July, September, October, November

who tells the mods if i gently caress up and don't make it anyone can call in a failed toxx; if no one else does it I do

who checks i've done it i could just not and say i did lol you need to satisfy me, which isn't a high bar tbh, but I'll probably need to see something, up to you what that is

how long are you gonna do it for forever, i guess? we'll see

IT'S BEEN A PRETTY CRAZY YEAR ALL ROUND YOU KNOW ock

30k this month on my series. After doing 54k last month, I figured out I'd started two novels instead of one. So by the end of the year at least one first draft has to be done.

Far better than I had anticipated. In word count, anyway. My words are bad! Maybe in 2017 they'll be less bad and more numerous.

I'd like to sign up for this once the next thread comes up, though... Umm...

I'm writing a technical textbook? Is that fine? Still creative, yes?

Thought I'd poo poo up this thread instead of the next one. Keep all of the suck in 2016 and all that.

k so this has been a tiring month. here are my wordz, I'm v scattered ill post up subs l8r

eyes draft II was 67.9k, now 92.4 k, so up 24.5k

Cherophobia (formerly god is when...) was 1.1k, now 3.6k, so up 2.5 k

lol i didnt link this right last time but this is butterfly of flesh and blood , was 9.4 k, now 10.7k, up 1.3k, finished ig as a more bs than normal rough draft

Teeth Draft I was 1.1 k, now 3.9k, up 2.8k

fascia 2.9k i hate this bs but i wrote about it anyway because of a sign from the universe. this discourse is v toxic imo and can safely be said to "trigger me"

Hive Ghosts 1.2k subbin this to technophilia vol 2

k so with maybe a weak to go i was kind of boned cuz id been slacking. my friend brainstormed an edgy idea that i could just pump words into that would be pure retardation. so i started a bunch of stories that must share the ending line of Peter Watts The Things, I will surprise sex it into them. The project is called I Will surprise sex It Into Them.

violation 1: "sleeping. sleeping" 7.7k

violation 2: "All My Friends Are Wasted" 6k

violation 3: "Hope My Rains Leave a Stain" 2.6k (wip)

added 1.1k to my gay banhopping notes pile for eyes which was 10.8k, now 11.9

terribad pretensious poetry:

concentration camp dreams (for jove) .06k
darkside (for rana) .07k

calculator adds this up to 53.53k, I don't think math is real anymore but hopefully it holds for the first five times you add it up or someth









last sub was literally posting on a forum and I have to w8 for the post 2b approved
